'Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List' is, as you by now know, about a girl finding out that the boy who lived across the way from her is gay.
To be honest, I was expecting more from these authors. I had previously read Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
and found it to be one of my favourite books. So when I got this, I was pretty excited. However, on finishing I couldn't help but feel disappointed.
The characters seem a little unemotional and stereotypical. (Ely's a boyslut, and the gay guys wear tight trousers.) The plot moves quickly and it's not explained why some of the stuff happens. For example, (Spoiler!) Bruce The Second kissing Ely and then realizing he's gay within a day of having a girlfriend and liking her.
Also, some of the text in the book is replaced with symbols which annoyed the hell out of me.
Pros: It does have a good plot behind it
Some of the stuff might make you laugh
Cons: Characters are boring and stereotypical
The plot moves a bit too quickly and half the stuff is entirely improbable that it'd happen within such a short period of time.
Symbols instead of text which can get annoying after the first ten pages.
The ending is tied up a bit too quickly.
All in all, it's not the worst book ever but it's not one I would be rushing to read again.
